THE Spinnaker Tower will turn blue for World Autism Day next week.

The landmark will join others around the world, including Paris’s Eiffel Tower and New York’s Empire State Building, to shine a light on the difficulties faced by children and adults with autism.

The tower will go blue on Wednesday, April 2.
